Spokesperson for Fastnet Line Joy Gillen said, “We are honoured to have been nominated for Best Overall Ferry Operator by the British Travel Awards. The West Cork Co-Op and team at Fastnet Line are determined to promote tourism in Wales and Ireland, whilst also providing an excellent cruise service to all our passengers.”

BTA’s chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards are widely considered to be the “Oscars” of the travel industry! It’s the largest awards programme in the UK created to reward travel companies and the winning accolade is the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business of travel for the UK consumer.”

Companies were nominated by travel industry professionals and a selection of the previous year’s consumer voters, and the shortlisted companies now go to the consumer voting stage. In 2010 over 120,000 votes were cast with the results scrutinized and audited by Deloitte LLP. The winners of the 2011 British Travel Awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony on 2 November at the Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London.
